ARC Grant Funding for Broadband in WV Now Available
The Appalachian Regional Commission has made 4.2 million in grant funding available for broadband development through the West Virginia ARC Central Appalachian Broadband Initiative. Funding is limited to these ARC-designated distressed counties which have been most negatively impacted by the downturn in the coal industry: Boone, Clay, Lincoln, Logan, McDowell, Mingo, Webster, and Wyoming.
Applications are due October 30, 2019. The goal of the initiative is to provide funding for the deployment of broadband that will increase economic and business development or provide service to unserved customers.
The application process is being administered through the West Virginia Development Office. Please e-mail Tony.M.Oleary@wv.gov for more information.
